I want to try it, but I'm nervous and don't know if it's safe.<br /> </em>&ndash; <em>Catelyn</em></p> <p>You can practice inserting a <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/teens/supplies.html/">tampon</a> before getting your period. But it's probably better (and easier) to wait until your <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/teens/menstruation.html/">period</a> comes. That's because blood flow moistens the vagina and helps a tampon slide in easier. Without this extra lubrication, it can be harder to put a tampon in. If you do practice inserting a tampon before your period, don't forget to remove it right away.</p> <p><em>*Names have been changed to protect user privacy.</em></p>¿Puedo practicar el uso del tampón antes de que me venga la regla?¿Puedo practicar el uso del tampón antes de que me venga la regla?https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/es/teens/practicing-esp.html/93308c65-7ac5-47fa-9cb7-b40d05ff1a9a
